Celebrating Black History Month

The Foundry is proud to have Makerspaces for All. As we celebrate Black History Month we are reflecting on some of the amazing Black makers and businesses in our community and also in history. 

Emma Brittain-Hardy is a tenant, instructor, and staff member at the Foundry. She works in many mediums but this month she is most excited to teach a free sewing class to celebrate Black History Month. The class will talk about Gee’s Bend quilts and their impact on Black History. “These quilts were sold to fund voting rights campaigns. Quilt making was a form of empowerment; I’m excited to be involved in the Foundry’s Makerspaces because I see opportunities for empowerment through making happening here as well.” 

"Retooled ToolFest" coming in April

Keep your eyes peeled for our renamed team competition centered around an interactive team-building challenge (think escape rooms and scavenger hunts) with a ridiculous "April Fools" backstory.
